Leap of Faith

Once more I ride into the unknown,
Taking that leap of faith into fates future.
There may be thousands watching,
All I hear is my heart beating in the silence of my head
Will this be the time it all goes wrong?
Will I emerge as a burnt cinder?
Will the crowd go wild before they see my death?

The flames are lit.
I start down the slope,
I know the journey I’m taking is short.
The journey is worth a lifetime of thoughts,
I see the target up ahead.
I concentrate on getting the speed right
This feels as good as all the others
The wheels turn ever faster.
I feel elation as the ramp turns up,
A leap of faith is all I require,
To see you on the other side.

  1. wild ride, wild words.

  2. Thanks Bex, to be honest I’ve no idea where this came from and it took on a life of it’s own once I started it

  3. a leap of faith, Trevor, and once you take it I wonder where it will lead? Imaginative and full of hope, and definitely see you on the other side… 😉 xPenx

    • Pen, I’m not that brave though circumstances have arisen recently where I could look at this as a sort of leap into the ring of fire. I keep meeting people that challenge the way I think but not in a bad way, sort of giving me confidence to do or say things I wouldn’t normally say.

      I’m shy in real life but I have been opening up and being forced to open up and talk to people I would normally stay quiet around. (Does this make any sense?)
